ECM (Enterprise Content Management systems)
The software solutions covered in our database are from the Office and Digital Printing worlds - for instance:

Enterprise Content Management (ECM)
systems manage texts and information - content - as well as pdfs and other documents. ECM includes Document Management Systems (DMS) which store documents in electronic format, but which can often do much more besides: managing document workflows, handling incoming and outgoing information and an organization's legal obligations in terms of document conservation and destruction.
ECM covers document/content storage, searching, filing, tracability and access control, among other features and functions which
sets out in this section.
Some of the main providers of ECM are Alfresco, EMC, Hyland, OpenText and Square 9, to mention but five of the many thousands of popular and feature-rich ECM/DMS products available worldwide.

Document Capture covers all the techniques for character and barcode recognition, including

Document Capture systems usually involve three stages:
capture, process and route
(sending documents downstream).
Document Capture systems can provide a means to automate and organization's workflows, and can automate multiple workflows. However, since they do not store anything, they can only automate single steps.
The main developers in this area are Nuance (eCopy and AutoStore), Drivve and Aivika.
systems are apps for managing (often whole fleets of) printing equipment remotely.
Some are aimed at internal IT or other technical support departments charged with supporting and maintaining printing equipment.
Others are intended more for external service providers, often supporting a Managed Print Services contract.
Others still are intended to help with print audits by discovering equipment on a network and collating technical data on what they find.

Print Accounting Solutions
include all systems for managing print costs, and the security aspects of office printing devices.
Because this kind of solution usually manages the print queue, they often handle pull printing and secure printing too.
Print Accounting functions include analyses of walk-up usage (copy, fax and scan modes on multifunctions), user quotas, cost recovery and least-cost re-routing.
The big names in Print Accounting are Print Audit, Equitrac, PaperCut, SafeQ, Pagescope Enterprise and Uniflow.
